The service started with disrespectful responses to questions I asked about the food, never coming to refill our water, not picking up our finished plates (everyone else's water around us was refilled and plates were picked up in a timely manner), not giving us the dessert menu for 15+ minutes (it was not a full house that night), and not cleaning our table before dessert plates came out. I called the manager to inform him that I did not appreciate the server's attitude and pace, and he kindly apologized. When the server brought out the dessert plates, she made a smart remark that was unnecessary. Not a single apology came out of her mouth. Regardless of the poor experience the server gave us, the food was consistently delicious.

My boyfriend and I love having dinner at Ecco! We got a cheese board and two glasses of Cava to start. The fried goat cheese balls are a must! The eggplant ravioli I had was amazing. My boyfriend ordered a duck ragu pasta - it was very good but it’s pretty rich. We ordered a bottle of wine too. The side of shishito peppers was lacking in flavor so we didn’t eat much of those.

The food was delicious and we received great service. The steak could have been a better cut but had great flavor. The seating was a little bit cramped but overall I enjoyed my experience and will likely be back.
We had a large cheese board, side of peppers, steak, martini, 2 glasses of wine and a dessert for $140 which is not a bad price.

We split several tapas & a small risotto dish. Everything was overly heavy on butter, cheese, olive oil. Even the grilled bread with the mussels had been completely dipped in butter. The cauliflower/broccoli dish was soaked in oil & then had a bonus topping of cheese. Best of all, at 7:15 pm they had run out of both salads listed on the menu, so no healthier options period. Pretty space. Indifferent service. Won’t be back - F&B and St Cecelia nearby much better choices for the $ if you’re in the area & want a nicer dinner.

Everything was FANTASTIC. Our server Humalo was impeccable and very accommodating. Having known Ian in the kitchen from a previous restaurant, he came out and really made my boyfriend and I have a great experience. Definitely check out this new 5th group location!
Pro-Tip: Although the fried goat cheese gets all the glory, try the fried stuffed olives too. Insane flavor!

Our server from Indonesia was very personable and attentive. The food, however, was unimpressive overall, too salty and cheesy.
We ordered the fried olives which would have.been better in their natural state, the wagyu carpaccio which was covered with shredded cheese ( this got in the way of the flavor), the little gem
salad, which was really nothing special (though the best part of the dishes ordered), and the tuna tartare, which was not refreshing , but swimming in a non-descript sauce whose spice didn’t enhance the dish. Overall blasé and disappointing.

It’s glorified bar food at best, and could use a major rework.

I love the menu in Midtown and was a little disappointed that some of my favorites were not on the menu but the food was still very good. Wine list is acceptable but needs work. Service was great!

Too much cheese on the food. My friend ordered eggs which was smothered in cheese and we share cauliflower and broccoli which was covered in cheese. Service was okay; had two different servers. Would not rush back. Disappointed in food

Experience got off to a rocky start with the service, and continued to decline. We’d asked for a table in a quiet corner in the back of the restaurant, and were seated next to the open kitchen with lots clanking. Requested to be moved, and had to stand by the bar area for minutes while a new table was prepared. After being seated, it was a slow process to get any kind of attention from our waitress. 30 minutes to get a food/drink order placed. The waitress brushed us off and told us it was a busy Saturday night and basically had a “get over it attitude.” While it was busy, and delays are understandable, she was not performing her job. We saw her service 3 tables which had already been sat/served (pre-busing, etc) while we waited to place our first order.

Tapas arrived before a bottle of wine. Coming to a tapas style restaurant you expect to be able to enjoy your food with the wine. Wine followed after 15 minutes while food got cold as we waited for the wine. We asked for the wine twice and were brushed off.

Overall, the staff should understand that people are paying not just for the excellent food, but also for the overall dining experience. Will probably not be coming back as there are plenty of restaurants in the area that give you your money’s worth for the A class restraint experience. If I want poor service I’ll go to Chili’s next time.

Service was very good but we were disappointed with our entrees. The portion was small and we couldn’t find more than 2 tiny scallops in our dish

Ambiance and Location were nice. It was a little difficult to understand some of the menu options/food descriptions. Menu was very different than Midtown location. Might be nice to sprinkle in some simple apps/shareable items to compliment the more robust palette items.

The hostess direct us to an outdoor table. We were not offered indoor table. After 5 minutes with 89 degrees and after ordered drinks and two starters I decided to go to hostess and ask for an indoor table. Not very polite, she accommodated the request, but said we had to close the tab!!!Then I said, We just ordered can you pass it pls to our table!?. Again no I can’t. You have to close the tab.
In my opinion it Doesn’t make any sense we can not pass the tab to another table since we were not even served.
Well the new server made us see that she would have to go to the bar to get the drinks. Then the server with the starts food said the same I were looking for you outside!! Well, an experience very annoying, not well organized and disruptive of the special occasion.
Not going back

Every time we have gone to Ecco Buckhead and it's been quite a few, the service is impeccable from the moment you walk in the door to the moment you leave. Our server Brittney is by far the most attentive an knowledgeable persons we have ever had at any restaurant.
The wine and food are incredible ,the atmosphere is like sitting in a fashionable restaurant in New York City.
Every person we have brought to Ecco Buckhead has walked away wanting to come back for this wonderful experience again.

My 3rd visit to ECCO since opening. I want to love this place. Nice modern and friendly with open kitchen. Staff friendly but at times lost. So what’s wrong? Mediocrity. I’ve tasted much better food. I hope chef makes changes soon. St Cecelia across the street wins hands down!
